TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a reading specialist with 24 years of experience. Currently, I work with small group guided reading intervention and as a reading coach to the teachers in my building. I have ten years in the regular classroom teaching experience with grades 1,4 and 5,and one year as Technology Specialist.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Because my primary responsibility has been reading intervention with struggling readers, my instructional methods are based upon the individual needs of the students in my groups. My lessons are hands-on, active, and thoughtful. I encourage lots of oral discussion with high level questioning, and I include writing throughout the reading process. I LOVE interactive notebooks, anchor charts, mentor texts, and working with anything fun and active.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

In the past,, I've received two educational grants totaling four thousand dollars to build a leveled library and lending room for literacy workstations. With these funds combined with Title 1 reading funding, we've been able to add nearly 3000 books to our tradebook library.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Iowa State University and a Master's degree in Reading Education from the University of Virginia.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I blog at Comprehension Connection and Adventures in Literacy Land. I hope you'll drop by to read more about best practices in literacy instruction and share ideas of your own.
